I get my replacement mp 40 on Monday .., even for the short time I ran mine it's kinda like Wow,..where have you been? ... Hopefully this one , will last a long time., can't imagine going back to straight koralia's again ,..but like you said, worth the money ,just pricey !

Cool. I am thinking about ordering my second. But I also need to upgrade my lights so I have no idea what I'm going to do.

I spent $354 on 3 LED dimmable fixtures with UV. . Of course I got a gonga deal since I set up the group buy. LOL. Everyone else paid $235 per fixture.

Yup, different fixture. These are built specifically for a member of our local reef club who travels to China on a regular basis. He dictates to the manufacturer how to build them. The latest version have an RJ45 jack built in for the control signal. Pretty nice set up. For the price, I love them. For me they were $118 each.
